Other places to visit are Salisbury Beach across the river from Plum Island
(great for viewing Harbor seals at low tide in addition to great birding),
the Newburyport waterfront, and Cape Anne (especially Gloucester and
I recommend buying a guide such as Bird Finding in New England by Richard K.
Walton (may be out of print but you could probably find a copy at Amazon or
the like). Also pick up a tide table at one of the tackle shops. Birding at
low tide generally yields better results.

Besides Parker River and nearby spots on Plum Island can someone give me
